EDITOR—Recently, I read a book entitled Your Crisis is an Opportunity by Henry Mutebe. After finishing this amazing book, I tried to find out more about its author. I was so shocked to find out that this is a young man who wrote the book while still at Kyambogo University.

I was very happy to be reading a book written by a Ugandan because I have been to Uganda a number of times and it has become a second home for me. The government should supports such creative young people in order to diversify and broaden the service industry. Most of the developed countries have concentrated on supporting the service industry and this had given them a big push towards increasing their incomes.

There are so many young innovative and creative people who can be supported to sell Uganda and improve the livelihoods of many people. I was also shocked to find out that the book’s content reflected a mature understanding of issues from such a young person!

The success of this book is victory for all the young people of Uganda and a demonstration that young people can achieve a lot. I have not read any book in such a long time from a Ugandan but after reading this book, I realised that there are so many good books written by young people who are little known but are exceptional and deserve to be helped.

While in Uganda, I watched with dismay the way ordinary people especially young people, idolise and spend money on useless artists who are involved in fights and chaos. People should support creative and intellectually smart people like writers.
